    World War II. On the island of Mindanao, the Philippines, a man calling himself "General" Fertig has set himself up as a guerrilla leader to harass the Japanese. Army records show that the only officer named Fertig in the Philippines is a reserve lieutenant colonel of the Corps of Engineers, reported MIA on Luzon.

    "Good but not great"
    Overall

    The best part of this audio file was Dick Hill reading it. Mr Hill could make a grocery list entertaining.

    I have listened to another of Mr. Griffin's books dealing with Gen. Fertig and expected this book to "tell the rest of the story" of how the OSS assisted him in the PI using the characters from his earlier book to which he alluded sending assistance, but did not follow the same story line.

    To bad Mr. Griffin does not read his own books as would have given it 5 stars had he followed along his version of history.

    All in all still an entertaining listen of you like his books a little history of WW II.

    The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

    This is the first of Larry Niven's books. As an avid SF buff I am surprised that I have never experience his writing. This is a very good book. It has shades of the best writes that I have read. A little Asimov, Wells, Heinlein, and Clarke.
    I am very glad I took the chance and got this book the story line is good and stays simple enough to follow easily, but has twists and turns to keep you wondering what will happen next.
    A definite listen

    Following all the other reviews reader is even worse in this book than he was in the last book I listened to. If I did not want to find out what happens I would have given up. Don't listen and drive you will never make your destination

    After the presidents' helicopter, Marine One, goes down in a brutal thunderstorm, the government blames the European manufacturer of the helicopter, accusing them of killing the president. Senate investigations and Justice Department accusations multiply as Mike Nolan, a Marine Corps reserve helicopter pilot and trial attorney in civilian life, is hired to defend the company from the criminal investigations and a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by the most notorious lawyer in America.

    I started not to get this book based on the description from publisher, it did not seem to be something I would enjoy. I love legal thrillers and got it anyway. It was the best decision I have made regarding audio books. The twists and turns will keep you wondering what will happen next. Get the book and sit back and enjoy.

    They were the young ones, the bright ones, the ones with the dreams. From the Nazi-prowled wastes of North Africa to the bloody corridors of Europe, they honorably answered the call. War - it was their duty, their job, their life. They marched off as boys and they came back - those who made it - as soldiers and professionals forged in the heat of battle....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The reader. His pronunciation of German words detract from the performance. While his rendition of voices is good he needs to read only books based with English names, cities, ect.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope who ever reads the next book(s) in the series does a better job.
